Can't open links from Outlook or Word
Posted on 2007-10-16
I run Windows XP Professional and Outlook 2003 (11.8118.8132) SP2.
I have a new nuisance which has appeared out of the blue. If I receive an email with a link to a website in the text and click on the link I get a message:
Microsoft Office Outlook
X This operation has bee canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.
I log on as system administrator (no one else uses this computer. It only began to do this a coupe of weeks ago. Never had this problem before. I have searched the Windows Security settings and the Norton Internet Security settings to see if some new (bloody) automated update has changed something but I can't find anything which looks relevant.
Also, if I paste a valid link into a Word documents and then click the link I first get a message in the bottom left corner of Word saying "Word is preparing to open this document" Note pad opens, then I get a message:
! Cannot fing the C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\8LDDSLIS\register.htm file.
Do you want to create a new file?
Very weird. This never happened before either. Any suggestions?
